Trevor M. Keyes -- Bay Future, Inc

BAY CITY, Mich. - Bay Future, Inc., the countywide economic development organization responsible for business retention, expansion, and attraction for Bay County, MI, has announced the promotion of one of its own.

Mark D. Litten, President & CEO of Bay Future, Inc., with the support of the Bay Future, Inc. Board of Directors, formally appointed Trevor M. Keyes, former Acting Interim President & CEO of Bay Future, Inc., as the organization's new Vice President of Economic Development. This promotion comes on the heels of the Board's decision late last year to hire former Ohio native, Mark D. Litten to lead the organization as the President & CEO, a position Keyes held for over 18 months in the interim.

"I'm extremely humbled by the opportunities given to me by this organization and board. I look forward to continuing to grow here at BFI while also passing on the same opportunities of continued growth to our local companies," Keyes said.

Jeff Mayes, Chairman of the Bay Future, Inc. Board of Directors, commended Keyes' work with the organization and local industrial companies. "This is a well-deserved promotion to a well deserving individual. Trevor holds characteristics that are essential in this line of business: he is outgoing, a knowledgeable resource, and has an intense passion for helping to grow our companies here in Bay County, and in turn, to help grow this community, his home," said Mayes.

Litten echoed Mayes' statement, "The skills that Trevor possesses were definitely part of the reason I decided to accept the job at Bay Future, late last year. Even though our working relationship is brand new, we have had many opportunities though the hiring process to bond and get to know each other, while also working closely on projects and getting to know the community. He is one of Bay County's largest assets."

Keyes will retain responsibilities including the implementation of Bay Future, Inc.'s business retention and expansion program while assisting in attracting high tech, manufacturing, and industrial clients to Bay County through site selection and company visits. Keyes will also be responsible for the marketing of the organization as well as communication of resources to potential clients including comprehensive labor market analysis which Keyes has most recently received EMSI Certification from Economic Modeling Specialists Intl. giving him the certified designation. Keyes is one of a very select few who has this certification throughout the 8-county Region 5 Prosperity Zone.
